12 Must-See Sundance Successes

The buzziest films to come out of this year's festival

'Dinosaur 13'

Dinosaur 13
Sundance Institute

A heartbreaking tale of warring paleontologists, this documentary centers on the custody battle surrounding a complete set of South Dakota-found T-Rex bones – the dinosaur otherwise known as Sue. Based on the memoir of lead researcher Pete Larson (who made the discovery), 13 offers insight into the animosity between commercial and academic dinosaur hunters, charts Larson's byzantine legal battles and warns of unfettered federal power when 65 million-year-old bones are at stake. —K.V.S.
